A body has been found that is believed to be that of Warren Sill, the hiker who disappeared in British Columbia in July.
The body was found Saturday in the Gull Creek area of British Columbia by the Whiskey Creek Trail where Sill's vehicle was left, according to Constable Lesley Smith, a spokeswoman with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Dental records have not yet confirmed Sill's identity, but a T-shirt from a North Ridgeville orthodontist was found by the body.
A search-and-rescue team, which was doing a training exercise in the area where Sill was reported missing, found the body. Smith said lower water levels in November made the area more accessible than when the search was done in July.
Sill, a 26-year-old graduate of Kent State University and Elyria Catholic High School, had gone to British Columbia to make a documentary on the rare Kermode bear.
Herbert Sill said his son had a lifelong love of animals. Sill said his son wanted to document the bears and believed they might be endangered if a pipeline designed to transport Canadian tar sands oil is constructed.
"This is what his passion was," Sill said of his son. "He prepared for this intensely and was very excited about it."
